Testimonials from our volunteers:

Being a volunteer at TMORA is like being part of a family. The Museum founders have opened their home and hearts to us, and the Director and staff make us feel as though we are an important part of the museum. We are valued, acknowledged and recognized in a very personal way. It is a real pleasure to spend time at the Museum each week, among family, friends, the beauty of the exhibitions and the integrity of the setting — Patty
